Charlie and I met at the library, and as soon as he walked in, I could tell something was wrong by the depressing look on his face. I asked him what was wrong, and he decided to tell me about his night. Joe and Frank invited him to a party. There were a bunch of girls and some of the factory workers at the party. Charlie told me that the last time he drank he got sick, so he told Frank and Joe he did not care for anything and they just gave Charlie a coke. Charlie told me he realized it tasted funny, but it was a taste in his mouth. Charlie then said Joe told him to go dance with Ellen and he did. He said he didn’t know the steps, but she was teaching him. He kept tripping because people were sticking their feet out. He said he couldn’t understand because only him and Ellen were dancing. Charlie told me he saw the funny look on Joe’s face, and that made his stomach have a funny feeling. Charlie also told me Frank said that he hadn’t laughed that hard since they ditched him at muggy’s that night. He said he was so upset he went out on the street and threw up, and then he had to walk home. Charlie told me he realized the guys only kept him around to make fun of him, and he now knew what, “pullin a Charlie Gordon” meant. The sadest part was when Charlie told me he felt really ashamed that night and it made me feel so sad because he deserves more than that and is much smarter than they make him look. It also made me very aggravated with Joe and Frank to treat him that way.
